Vincent Kompany is pleased with Manchester City as they held on to beat Chelsea on Sunday and reach the FA Cup final.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has praised his side's resilience after they held on to beat Chelsea and advance to the FA Cup final.

Demba Ba's response set up a nervy finish for the Premier League champions after Samir Nasri and Sergio Aguero had given City the lead, but they held on to earn a 2-1 victory at Wembley on Sunday.

Kompany was delighted with the Manchester outfit's ability to hold on to their lead.

"It's great. You don't get to play a lot at Wembley and when you win it is historic for us," said Kompany.

"Chelsea are a good team and you can see with the front players they have got you are always liable to concede chances.

"I think our strength is to be organised and to defend and we have been able to absorb it. They are very strong."

City will face Wigan Athletic in the final next month.
